I am increasingly aware that this blog is veering from the original path; this is a) due to my web designer disappearing to NYC (and being a wee bit hectic / lacking sufficient stimulus from me) and b) because it has become an interesting ground to mull over ideas, projects and purchases. However, we are getting there with the site and I'm promised a soft launch in ten days or so.....I also need to get up to speed with Wordpress between now and then. Here's the homepage
www.offthelist.co.uk is the result of years of voracious antique buying around the UK; no auction, dealership or junk shop (a favourite haunt) failed to keep a gem buried or kitsch ceramic unpurchased. Subsequently, the house began to bulge at its seems and my more formal selling outlets were never going to be suitable showrooms for the whimsy and delight of my ever expanding collection. The lady in my life, I discovered, began to dig into drawers and siphon off surfaces suitable trinkets for presents and through her unintended genius Off the List was born!
